Why'd they choose to play Dont Look Back In Anger, of all Oasis songs, when Noel already played it to end his own set? I think that the idea of collaboration is cool; but, it just seems like a wasted opportunity to have the same song played twice in the same night.
Noel didn't play it in his set at all. Not sure where you have got that info from.

Well Twickenham made a right embarrassing mess of Red Zone tonight. It didn't directly affect me but I was on the GA rail bordering it.  Several people got in there without Red passes / bands. Some may have been trying it on but some were genuinely let in by staff and thought they were okay to be there - maybe they didn't know what that section meant? Anyway Crowd Management were sent around first of all and tried the soft approach, telling them could they please leave. They refused and I assumed they came to some compromise due to their error (and the RZ area being huge for the amount of bodies actually there anyway). A good 15-20 mins pass and Noel starts his set. Crowd Management then return, beefed up and checking everyone. The people without passes are again told to go and are escorted out, one had to be dragged out after things got physical. I then watched other physical confrontations and arguments raging at the RZ entrance for what seemed like the entirety of Noel's set.

How difficult was it to man the RZ gates and know what to look for? Hope they have it sussed tomorrow.

That's a shame as the GA queue itself was incredibly well organised.
I tried to get in cos it looked like the were letting anyone in but they wouldn't let me, my mate got in for about an hour before getting chucked out 😉

Ahhh, last night, setlist.fm had his set listed as 12 songs, with Don't Look Back In Anger closing.

Yep it sounded like "They're expecting! Can I say that?".

I want to see a picture of Adam at that moment.
This!

Word is that he was not happy with Bono.
Secret's out?

Adam should be the one making the announcement, when he wants to. That Bono!!

TBH I am sure Adam was the one that told the people that matter to him such as close friends and family.  I can't see Adam upset that Bono told fans before he did!

Can anyone advise how the screen looked in broad daylight?
And roughly what time did Noel come on?

Multiple times over the last two nights Bono told Willie to turn off the spot lights in attempt to create 'The milky way'. Most times it didn't materialize. There was also a unique moment tonight when all lights were off on stage and it was black during One. You could just see the kit and this big noise was happening. It was an unforgettable moment that I can't remember happening at any earlier shows.

Maybe someone else that was there during One can explain what was happening.

Did anyone else think that following the dedication of Ultraviolet (Light My Way) to Jo Cox, then seeing Anne Frank, Marie Curie & co. on the screens - seeing Sandi Toksvig was just more than a bit ...rubbish?

Well what can I say. That was the most incredible weekend I have ever experienced. Never have I been to something as big as two sold out Twickenham Stadium shows with U2. Absolutely mind blowing. They are the most incredible band and truly one of a kind. Will post show reviews tomorrow. Atmosphere was incredible for both evenings. I have to say best shows so far this tour!

I was curious about The Women of Iceland. Did they do a coup or something?

So, can anyone confirm if the visuals for the European leg have stayed the same as the American one?  Are they still using the Morleigh clip for TTYW?

They protested not earning the same earnings as men doing the same jobs they were working.
